DSC08606_1.JPGI made Nympheus for a little challenge with Liberty of London fabric theme.
Nympheus was exhibited in a big craft show in Paris among many other creations (not bears). He finnished fifth from visitors' votes. Then another vote was organized online and he finnished second, hehehehehe. :dance:

Nympheus is a bear tranformed into a water lily.

He is only 11 cm tall. This is a miniature compared to what I usually make. I do not think I will try smaller, to be honnest.

I do not aim to try making lots of mini bears. I may just make one in a while.

His two rows of petals are removable. His stall his the water lily leaf. I made it with fimo clay and then I painted it with acrylic paints and added some varnish.
The bear is made with mini cashemire fabrics and thread jointed.

I hope you like him.

He is now adopted (he found a mom two days ago at a teddy bear show).







Beary hugs,
